Lugs thickness
I am currently looking for a 1675/16750 and my major focus is to get a watch where the lugs have not been aggressively polished down.

I determine this by looking at the lugholes. If the end of the springbar almost sticks out (assuming that genuine Rolex springbars have been used) the lugs seem to be heavily polished.

Am I correct with my way of analyzing the lug thickness, any other ideas?

And I wonder, when we will see the first non-lughole models, where the lugs have been so ground down that we can see holes...

An extreme example of over polished lugs;

Not sure I think it's that kind to use other sellers pics when the watch itself is for sale at the moment. Must be other pics to demonstrate this with?

The other seller himself mentions that the lugs are overpolished. This is why the watch has been listed for sale for months with no buyers. IMO the price he is asking is too much even if the case was perfect but to demand a price that high for a case that bad is just foolish. If he wanted to sell it the price would have to be around 9k.
